In good condition, a Gieves ERII British RN Officer’s Sword, Scabbard & Bag
Includes sword knot and buttons shown in photos.
The well etched 31 inch blade has some light patina patches but not too many, is in good condition and firm in the grip / hilt. The hilt / guard good, the folding section a little stiff but locates properly onto scabbard retaining pin. The grip good but for an ink spot (will remove with care); the twisted grip wire bindings are good but one turn on one side a lesser strand is a little astray. Sword knot a little age but good. Scabbard good; sword sheathes and draws well. Bag aged but good though hood come apart at seams. Buttons good.
A good ensemble at a nice price, £600. Please quote item reference AH09. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1646 golf (2.292).
